Dear 100 Hour Board,

How does each college select a student to speak at graduation?

-Just Curious

A: Dear Most Common 'Nym,

A list of students in the college with GPAs above a 3.85 is submitted to each college, which is then free to select students at their whimsy. (Granted, they probably have some criteria to work with, such as professors' experience, extracurricular activities, or general leadership promise or aptitude, but "whimsy" seems a nice word to describe it.)
